Although it was back in September, I thought some of you (Liz) might want to see some pics from Harper's 3rd Birthday. It was really a celebration all week long! When I asked Harper what type of party she wanted, she was adamant about having a PURPLE party. She also requested that everyone coming to her party wore purple as well. Seeing that KSU's colors are purple and silver, that wasn't a problem! We partied at one of the many parks here in Manhattan. All of her grandparents came, as well as Uncle Blake and her FAVORITE cousin Sarah Ann. Lots of our new Young Life friends came to make the party so perfect. It was SUCH a fun weekend and I literally can't believe my little girl is 3. She is SO curious, social, talkative, and goofy. She loves to make you laugh and she definitely enjoys bossing Reese and Cash around. She is our little purple princess!
On Harper's actual birthday, we started the day with donuts
We also had a surprise party that day
Several of our awesome Young Life leaders were waiting at our house for the big surprise. Harper's reaction was PRICELESS!

As soon as Harper's grandparents arrived on Saturday, it was PRESENT TIME
Some of her favorite gifts were Barbies, a My Little Pony, and a little polly pocket Snow White
Sarah Ann came with Nan and Pops to enjoy the weekend
Purple Party Day!
My girls ready to party in purple!
They are only about 1 year apart, but Sarah Ann towers over Harper!
Jumping for joy
(Pops- what would I do without you?)

I LOVE this photo of Will with his balloon
After the party, Chad and I took Harper and Sarah Ann to the splash park. They couldn't BELIEVE that they were able to play in the water in their clothes! They were hilarious.
They LOVED the COLD water
Don't you love their faces?
Sarah Ann was drinking the water
After the splash pad, they played on the playground. This thing spins around and it is MY favorite thing to play on at the park. After the park, we took these two to the candy store. They were in complete awe of all the candy.
They closed out their BUSY day with a movie.
The adults closed out THEIR day with Guitar Hero. Nan, you were a trooper!
Nan loves Guitar Hero.
It was an AMAZING Birth-week for Harper and we LOVED having family and friends here to celebrate. We are so thankful to have people who love our kids so extravagantly.
